Island with a green heart
La Gomera offers a variety of impressive landscapes, and each valley, each village has a different feel. The valleys stretch from the heart of the island, the national park with the highest peak, the Alto de Garajonay, down to the coast.
The southern regions (southwest/ south/ southeast) of the island have a different climate from the north: during winter (November to March). From April to october it is sunny on the northern as well as on the southern coast. The north (Vallehermoso/ Hermigua) is more fertile and therefore extraordinarily scenic and popular for hiking, with numerous phantastic trails.
Compared to Tenerife, there is no mass tourism on La Gomera. The main tourist village on La Gomera is the “hippie flair” Valle Gran Rey. San Sebastián, also called “La Villa”, is the small and charming capital of the Gomeros. Both places offer good infrastructure, partly very good restaurants and nice beaches. Be flexible and take day trips to explore the whole island with your rental car.
All regions of the island are suitable for hiking. There are beautiful beaches in Valle Gran Rey, Alojera, Playa Santiago and San Sebastián de la Gomera. You can enjoy the sunsets in Valle Gran Rey, Taguluche and Alojera. With the rental car you are flexible and undertake day trips.
Known places on La Gomera
Since 2004 I mediate holiday homes, apartments and rental car bookings on the smallest & western Canary islands La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. The first years I was living in Vallehermoso (La Gomera) with my family. For some time the office is situated in Germany, and I travel to the most beautiful islands in the sea several times a year.
I know all accommodations, all house owners personally, take the photos myself and regularly check the quality of the houses on site. My program is small and fine: I only offer holiday homes in which I feel comfortable and which I can really recommend. So to get to know the islands far from the tourist paths, you’ve come to the right place at GOMERA individual: it’s Canarias auténticas.
